Integrative Medicine Q & A

by Pouya Shafipour, MD

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine aims to treat the whole person rather than focusing on one specific ailment or disease. The goal is to ensure the body is as healthy as possible so you can enjoy optimal overall health. As a system, each component of your body is reliant to some degree on the rest of your body. An integrative approach seeks to treat the whole person to bring all these components into a healthy balance.

How can integrative medicine help me?

Integrative medicine services provide the healthy foundation for your general well-being. Our integrative approach is aimed at making sure your care attends to all your needs through health education and guidance, preventive care, and an assessment of every aspect of your health, including helping you manage weight so you can reduce your risk of weight-related diseases.

What is included in Wellesley's integrative medicine approach?

Our integrative medicine services focus on whole health by helping patients understand the critical role their decisions play in their overall health. Nutritional guidance aimed at providing the right balance of nutrients and decreasing excess weight helps our patients feel better about themselves as well as attain the best health possible. Lab work, as well as a physical exam and health history, can help provide a well-rounded snapshot of your current health as well as a baseline so we can develop a customized care plan and measure changes in your health over time.
